“Our only challenge with NaCSA is the way they award contracts to contractor.”

“Citizens in the district benefit last because some of the contractors come with their man powers and some are not doing are quality work because it’s not their district. NaCSA should be concerned about home based contractors in their next project implementations and that will help them monitor the work easily.”
